US parents are weaponizing their babies, christening them with names associated with killing and maiming. Here's a sample of baby names, many of which are on the rise: Danger, Arrow, Rebel, Pistol, Arson, Gunner, Cannon, Trigger, Shooter, Caliber, Magnum, Pistol, Mace, Blade, Saw, Dagger, Archer, Arrow, Chaos, Rambo. "There has also been a rise in the use of gun manufacturers such as Barrett, Remington, Kimber, Ruger, Wesson, Browning, Benelli and Beretta," reports the Independent.
"Ace: It's bad enough when people name a boy Ace. Ace the boy has long bangs and the world's most punchable face. Ace the girl is stuck with a name that screams out to the world, 'Daddy wanted a boy, and he wanted that boy to be a fighter pilot.'" Drew Magary at Gawker has compiled some of BabyCenter's extra-specifically weird names that actual people gave their actual babies in the Year of Our Lord 2012. Hint when naming a baby: Don't use the wrong part of your brain to name a child. I'm talking to you, parents of Kaixin and Pawk. (via Gawker)
